For those of you who this app doesn’t work for
Ok, so I had the same issues of dropping .HEIC files on the app and nothing happened. While on the phone with Apple to try and convert the files to .JPG file format, I discovered that all my files that were labeled .HEIC files, were in reality JPEG files. I just renamed the files to .JPG and they opened just fine. What I suppose might be happening is that I transferred my photos using Photo Transfer App on my phone and Mac. The files came over converted to JPEG, but the file names still had .HEIC extension, so I assumed that they were HEIC and tried using this converter. It didn’t work and the reason it didn’t was because the files were actually JPEGs with .HEIC extension.. So, if this converter doesn’t work, try renaming your files to .JPG and see if they open.
Just what I needed
On a recent vacation my wife decided to use her iPhone to take photos instead of her camera which she has used for years. When I transferred the pictures from iPhone Photos to MAC Photos, the HEIC format was maintained. This was greater until Itried to edit them using Photoshop Elements. Maybe PSE should support HEIC files, but iMazing converted my files as advertised.
The interface is pretty bare bones, but it was free and works.
Perfect little app.
So, my wife and I share pics through Google Photos. I downloaded the ones taken from her iPhone to my laptop, and was unexpectedly faced with this new “.heic” format for the first time. In less than five minutes, I was able to find this app, download it, and convert her files to JPEGs with no problems whatsoever. Perfect. Big shout out to the developers—thanks!
